BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Dermatophytes responsible for causing dermatophytoses in humans have acquired resistance to certain antimycotic drugs. We isolated naturally occurring actinomycetes with an ability to produce metabolites having antimycotic property. The timecourse of antifungal metabolite production in terms of arbitrary units (AU) under optimum conditions was studied. METHODS Water and soil samples were collected from various locations. The actinomycetes were isolated on starch casein… CONTINUE READING
